Although HDX includes data about all countries in the world, our report focuses on 25 locations with humanitarian response plans. This analysis is based on the HDX Data Grids, which provide a comparable way to assess data availability across locations and categories.

The State of Open Humanitarian Data 2023 contains details on the data available for each location, category and sub-category covered in 25 Data Grids. It includes a country deep-dive for South Sudan and showcases the work of the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) on community mapping. It also provides examples of how climate impact data is being used to predict the impacts of a hazard on lives and livelihoods and trigger actions to mitigate them.
